Do you use devfsd ?

I had to specify root like this :
root=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part5 then it worked just fine.

Btw Andrew ,

from http://w1.894.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/index.html.


-static char *psmouse_protocols[] = { "None", "PS/2", "PS2++", "PS2T++", "GenPS/
2", "ImPS/2", "ImExPS/2", "Synaptics"};
+static char *psmouse_protocols[] = { "None", "PS/2", "PS2++", "PS2T++", "GenPS/2", "ImPS/2", "ImExPS/2", "SynPS/2"};
